We are trying to fit a BBQ in between the showers forecast 🤗
I received a Muscle Foods order yesterday, with some lovely plump chicken breasts.
I have half a jar of Tikka paste in the fridge, so I have mixed it with half a large tub of plain Greek Yoghurt, some lemon juice, salt and pepper and popped it into a large freezer bag.
I have used 4 of the breasts, one of which I will leave whole for youngest’s lunch tomorrow for work (long shift) – 3 will be diced into big chunks for the Kebabs. The remaining 8 are split into batches of 2 and frozen for another day 😇
Pop this all into the freezer bag – then into the fridge for several hours or overnight if you have time 🙃
When ready, pop the chicken onto the skewers – a messy job, but well worth it – don’t pack them too tightly, so they cook in between.
I also topped up at Aldi with fresh salad Veg and some new potatoes (not for me – low carving to loose my jelly belly 😳)
I have chopped some bell peppers and onions for the kebabs and will add some baby tomatoes – I, well hubby, wAnts to Cooke the chicken separately from the veg, so he can get each cooked ‘to perfection’
I still had 2 Field mushrooms that need using, so, with the little bit of garlic butter I had left in the freezer.
Garlic mushrooms 🤤
The potatoes will be boiled and tossed in butter and Home grown mint 😍 they smell amazing… no, I must resist….
The Veg and mushrooms are cooked in the BBQ
Chicken Tikka is ready.
I am Serving on a bed of watercress for the Salad. I think BBQ is an equitable division of labour, I prepare, he cooks, we both tidy 🤗
Pud is strawberries and cream – not home grown – yet… 😉
